Recent scientific advances have revealed the identity of several enzymes involved in the synthesis, storage and catabolism of intracellular neutral lipid storage droplets. An enzyme that hydrolyzes stored triacylglycerol (TG), triacylglycerol hydrolase (TGH), was purified from porcine, human and murine liver microsomes. In rodents, TGH is highly expressed in liver as well as heart, kidney, small intestine and adipose tissues, while in humans TGH is mainly expressed in the liver, adipose and… CONTINUE READING
